Architecture and National Identity: The Centennial Projects 50 years on

The intern will participate in a variety of activities related to research and analysis related to building programs carried out by various levels of government in connection with Canada’s Centennial of Confederation in 1967. The research will include literature review, archival research, project documentation and analysis, and collection and interpretation of project data, and will contribute to the preparation of grant proposals to major funding agencies.

You don’t know what you’re missing until you take that Step

“I thought I might benefit from learning a little bit more about the business environment, but I didn’t have very high expectations about the workshops themselves,” El Saadany says. It turned out his expectations were to be exceeded by far. In the end, El Saadany took part in half a dozen different Mitacs Step skills development workshops.

What sets the Step workshops apart, El Saadany thinks, is first and foremost the quality and professionalism of the presenters. However, the content has also proven very useful to him. 

Mapping Ontario’s NanoTechnology Industry

The purpose of this research project is to collect data on the actors with an interest in nanotechnology – including suppliers, users, researchers, associations and others in order to better understand the networks of innovation and to support NanoOntario’s efforts to facilitate the development of innovation networks and advance nanotechnology.

Network Analysis of the Ontario Technology StartUp Innovation Ecosystem

This research is primarily a network analysis with an emphasis on determining geographic and business activity concentrations of connections of the Ontario Technology Start-Up Innovation Ecosystem. It will use cross-border and local investment transaction histories and any available network information (via LinkedIn, C100, Digital Puck, etc.) to create the core social graph. This data may be augmented with a targeted survey or network mapping experiment (i.e. please invite the most important person that you are connected to complete this survey). 

Integration of ergonomic concerns and simulation capabilities into a company's model, engineering design and development process

This project aims to assist a company in developing Discrete Event Simulation (DES) and Human Factors modeling (HFM) capabilities. Simultaneously the project aims to explore the impact of alternative engineering designs with a Human Factors (HF) focus. These two aims will help understand factors that affect the uptake and application of the DES and HFM in work system design. The participating company is Research In Motion (RIM), which is a well known Waterloo, Ontario based telecommunication company.

Governance of Outsourcing – Industry Best Practices

 

The research focuses on governance in outsourcing relationships While the outsourcing industry grows at double digit rates, satisfaction with outsourcing arrangements could certainly be improved. Often the source of dissatisfaction, governance is a broad term that includes formal issues such as contracts and service level agreements, as well as informal issues such as relationship management and trust. The intention of this research study is to provide participants with a set of best and emerging practices in outsourcing governance.

Reducing the Carbon Footprint at Hydro One

The purpose of the research project is to develop options for the reduction of the carbon footprint at Hydro One Networks Inc. (HONI). The research will focus on helping HONI meet a reduction goal of half of current emission levels over the next decade. The company has taken preliminary steps to assess and plan for the reduction of the company’s carbon footprint, including the collection of preliminary data and the outlining of programs to reduce their impact on the environment.
